War veterans in Mashonaland West province appealed to President Emmerson Mnangagwa to increase their monthly allowances.
Some of the war veterans, war collaborators and ex-detainees said they did not benefit from the land reform or farming equipment, while some were not receiving school fees for their children. Said Chris Ncube:
We fought for this land, that is why we are called sons of the soil, but surprisingly some of us do not have land and those who have it are failing to yield good results because of lack of farming equipment.
Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association provincial chairman for Mashonaland West Cornelius Muwoni said President Mnangagwa was aware of some of the grievances and was working on them. He urged all the war collaborators to go for vetting to benefit from Government programmes.
